This is a tomato/meat mixture served over rice that makes a total meal. It is quick, easy, and economical. I first made it when I got home late one day and needed to fix something quick with whatever was on hand. My husband is a hearty eater and finds this meal filling and delicious.
Cook rice according to package directions.
While rice is cooking, cut chicken into small to medium bite size pieces and slice onions. Brown meat and onions in oiled skillet. Add tomatoes and tomato sauce and simmer until rice is cooked. Serve tomato/meat mixture over rice and enjoy.
I don't add any additional seasoning. The seasonings and spices in the various flavors of diced tomatoes is all that is needed.

Cook rice with soup starter according to package directions. I usually use my rice cooker for this part.
When rice is halfway done, melt butter in large skillet. Add in onion and frozen veggies and saute, stirring frequently. All veggies to begin to caramelize, getting a crispy glaze on one side. Add in sausage just before veggies are done to a crisp-tender stage. This whole process takes no more than 10 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
Add rice into the veggies and sausage mixture and stir well to mix all ingredients. Serve immediately.
For variation, you can add in fresh veggies you may have on hand. I've used cubed zucchini, cubed and peeled eggplant, sliced mushrooms, fresh corn from a cob, etc. You can also add two or three chopped scrambled eggs to enrich the protein in this dish. Add spices to your taste, but go lightly; the flavor is in the veggies and rice. Be creative, use what you have on hand! I do not recommend ever using canned veggies in this recipe, only fresh or frozen. Also, I have tried beef soup starter and it doesn't taste as nice (or look as nice) as the chicken flavor.

Very simple and yummy.
Brown beef in skillet. Add onion and cook over medium heat. Add water, soup, corn, and chili powder. Bring to a boil.
In a large skillet, saute rice and vermicelli in butter until golden brown. Gradually stir in the water, tomatoes, and contents of the rice seasoning packets. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender.
Cook ham and onion in butter in 10 inch skillet till onion is tender. Drain pineapple and reserve juice.
